The Red Bull Music Academy is quite an operation. While throwing 30 tyro producers and DJs together for two weeks and hoping they don’t come to blows is one thing, the actual logistics (and cost) of putting on the gig are quite something else.

For instance, 381 Queen Street West was until recently just a vacant building with a very steep set of stairs. Now, it has been turned insideout and houses half-a-dozen fully equipped studios, post-production suites, a radio station, a lecture theatre and tons of art from rising Canuck artists.

After the jump, some pics from the RBMA HQ including art by John Dickson (Smoking City and Traffic) and David Poolman (The Last Word In Lonesome Is Me), a not very comfortable chair, a selection of the studio equipment available to the participants, the lecture room and a shot from hip-hop snapper Jamel Shabazz’s Seconds Of My Life exhibition which is currently running in the city as part of the RBMA.
